SLOW DOWN pre-order!

SLOW DOWN is available for pre-order on Amazon in Kindle and paperback!

“A frenetic first novel… full of unedifying characters scrambling for the elusive, perhaps imaginary, brass ring.” —Publishers Weekly


“Lee Matthew Goldberg writes like a young Bret Easton Ellis doing a line of uncut Denis Johnson off the back of a public urinal. Memorable in the best possible way, also mostly illegal, Goldberg’s Slow Down is a mad man’s tour of Manhattan’s vices, follies, and ultimate betrayals.” —Urban Waite, author of Terror of Living and Sometimes the Wolf

“Slow Down starts fast and gets faster quick, gunning through yellow streetlights on its way to full collision with your shattered soul.  Lee Matthew Goldberg takes on the American Zeitgeist in this stunning debut.” – Stephen Jay Schwartz, L.A. Times bestselling author of Boulevard and Beat


“What would happen if one of Raymond Chandler’s 1940’s femme fatales were to join forces with one of Jay McInerney’s 1980’s enfant terribles? Lee Matthew Goldberg wrings every delectable trope imaginable out of this mashup while still managing a fresh spin the age-old question of what happens when immaturity mortgages soul for glory.  A writer to watch out for, which also applies to the protagonist of his novel but, I’m happy to say, for entirely different reasons.”

— David Kukoff, author of Children of the Canyon.


”Dark and hard-boiled writing that grabs you by the throat. Slow Down is one of those rare novels that’s so good you want it to go on forever!” —Nick Pengelley, author of Ryder: An Ayesha Ryder Novel
